After more than half a dozen failed attempts at being hired - all due to limitations of geography - it has finally happened:
I have been hired as a professional best man.
For reasons of client confidentiality, I will not be revealing the identity or reason that my client has chosen to hire me, but suffice it to say that sometime this fall, I will be attending a wedding as a paid professional best man.
As I've always said, put your ideas out there, as crazy as they may seem. You never know what might happen.
